Workforce shortages are a top concern for transportation agencies across the country. With maintenance workers needed year-round to keep roads clear and safe, No Boundaries member states are leading the way to identify recruitment and retention challenges and uncover noteworthy and effective solutions.
The recently published report, No Boundaries Synthesis: Responses to Staffing Shortages helps quantify staffing shortfalls and document mitigation efforts. Among member states, these include apprenticeship programs that provide on-the-job training, creative outreach efforts, innovative compensation and benefits packages, and more.
In addition, the synthesis report addresses the new federal commercial driver’s license requirements, their effect on the pool of qualified applicants nationwide, and how No Boundaries members are responding.
